With a wealth of Rs 31,960 crore, BJP MLA Mangal Prabhat Lodha & family of Macrotech Developers (formerly Lodha Group) have been named as the richest property developers in the country.

The family topped the GROHE Hurun India Real Estate Rich List 2019, which features the country’s richest real estate entrepreneurs. It was released by Hurun Report and GROHE India on Monday.

“With a wealth of Rs 31,960 crore, Mangal Prabhat Lodha & family of Macrotech Developers (earlier named Lodha Developers) retained the top spot in GROHE Hurun India Real Estate Rich List 2019 for the second consecutive year,” the report said.

The Lodha family’s wealth grew by 18 percent during 2019. They were followed by Rajiv Singh of Delhi-based DLF Ltd and Jitendra Virwani of Embassy Property Developments.

“At number two is Rajiv Singh of DLF (up to one rank) with a wealth of Rs 25,080 crore – up 42 percent as compared to 2018,” the report said adding that Jitendra Virwani of Embassy Property Developments bagged the third spot with a wealth of 24,750 crores.
